      Seminar Series to Begin


      Inland Southern California Air Quality First Topic


                 The Edward J. Blakely Center for Sustainable Suburban Development is pleased to announce the Randall Lewis Seminar Series, a monthly program of lectures and community discussions on the emerging issues of Inland Southern California.

                  The first seminar, at UC, Riverside on April 26, will be on Air Quality in Inland Southern California. Dr. James Lents, Director of the Blakely Center and former head of the South Coast Air Quality Management District, will discuss the current state of air quality, the pace of improvement, the imminent arrival of stricter federal standards and the regional impact of the new standards. Dr. Barry Wallerstein, current Executive Director of the Air Quality Management District, will comment on Dr. Lents� presentation. The floor will then be open to questions and comments from members of the audience. A reception with wine, refreshments and an opportunity to mingle with the speaker will follow. The entire program will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

                  The 2005 seminar series has been made possible through the generous sponsorship of Randall Lewis, Executive Vice President of the Lewis Group of Companies.

                  The May 19 program will feature Dr. Christopher Mead, a UCR graduate who is now Dean of the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico. Mead will be speaking on the Paris Opera House and its effect on the development of its neighborhood. The panel will then broaden the discussion to the role of cultural institutions in suburbs. On June 16, the seminar will focus on inclusionary zoning, the hotly debated practice by cities of requiring developers to set aside a certain portion of their housing units for low-income families.

                  Future programs will follow a similar format, with time for questions and discussion. Possible topics when the series resumes in September, include infrastructure financing, school quality, managing the human-wildlands interface, communities designed for health, the Hispanic impact, issues of water availability and quality, the relationship between density and affordability and television for the Inland region. The seminars will be hosted in venues around Inland Southern California.

                  A lively audience of elected officials, business people, city and county staff, environmentalists, members of community groups and those who simply want to explore topics which will affect the future of their communities is anticipated. The seminars will be free of charge.
